My point about too much rugby is way too many teams.
Lindsay Knight had it right when he said WHY change the old format when they used to have 9 teams in three divisions and the relegation system.
Not that im totally against ANZ Cup in that sense, I still think it could work, but throw out the complicated repecharge, and have the salary cap a little more enforced.
Ie... North HArbour has centre riches, Auck have way too many backs on the bench, SPREAD the love you know.
The games would improve significantly if talents are spread out more.
NZRFU has the power to do this, so why don't they. Put in a rule saying if you have way too many centres, you have to release some to some sort of draft system.
HAve a quota with the different facets of the team, Props, Hooker, Loosies, Locks, Halfbacks, First fives, Centres Wingers/Fullbacks.
THAT way, we don't get the situation where Nonu get pushed out to the wing because he has Umaga on his back, and Luke playing 1st five rather than his All Blacks second... etc etc etc...
